It is in my heart that I should let the eored keep the Fords without me awhile. There are plans to be made in Meduseld, and the reports I receive of Grima’s influence on my father are troubling. His kingship dims beneath the cloying veil of lies that Wormtongue spins. We have seen off the last of the orcs; my men report the countryside calm – they will be back of course. I should go to my father, he is not well.
"They came in the early hours, our battle was long. My Lord – this was the last thing he wrote."
